If you skip the opening of the 12/29/77 Sugar Magnolia you are skipping the absolute best jam sequence of any Sugar Mag ever. Listen to DP 10 again and tell me I'm wrong. It's a moment of pure genius never again equaled.

awesome filler material.

IMNSHO - DP10 was the best Dicks Picks release of them all. I love that crazy just off the beat ragged glory stuff the best. That is a Sugaree to be listened to loudly and proudly, especially with non-deadhead types around, it will send them scurrying for cover.

Right, sorry, forgot that DP 10 had tracks from both those nights. In any case I've said before and I'll stand by it probably until I ever hear better but I think the opening 12 measures or so of that Sugar Mag are my favorite Jerry licks of any song anywhere.

Funny, though, if you have it loaded into iTunes you'd never know it was from 12/30. The Sugar Mag on DP 10 does come up on my iTunes as 12/29, just like the rest of the DP.

And wow, is it ever impressive. Haven't even had my coffee and I'm wide awake. (Really different time zone ... pay no attention to the 7 p.m. at the top!) Now you've done it. I have to go back and listen from Estimated now.

I know!!! I think those licks in that version the that song are the purest evocation of joy I've ever heard in any music anywhere. I've probably listened to it 200 times and every time it just makes me happy. The rest of the song is great too but there's something about the beginning that is just totally trancendant.

Unless I am really impaired - always possible - there isn't a Sugar Mag in that show?

It could be " moment of pure genius never again equaled " is the opening jam of 12/29/77 - China Cat Sunflower from DP10. The show they broke out the first China Cat since Winterland '74 farewell run. That was a cool jam out of Playing In The Band. But you could both be right. Because DP 10 has the filler from 12/30/77 - Estimated > Eyes > Saint Stephen > Sugar Magnolia at the end of Disc 3.

To tell you the truth, maybe I am losing my mind, but I cannot find that Sugar Magnolia anywhere! Can anyone provide a link where I can actually hear this???

But it's not there - unless I'm going crazy. The songs are mislabeled, and Sugar Mag isn't there.

Really? Sorry, didn't check before I posted. Well, mixed blessing then ... you'll have to get the DP 10 :-)
